ACL2020 Toyota Player of the Week: Terry Antonis

Terry Antonis

Suwon Samsung Bluewings' Terry Antonis has been named this week's Toyota Player of the Week in the 2020 AFC Champions League.

The midfielder scored a stunning goal for the Korean FA Cup winners against Johor Darul Ta'zim but it was not enough to prevent the visitors from losing 2-1 on Tuesday. Nevertheless, the Australian's performance saw him pick up this week's top player plaudit.

Antonis' spectacular strike, which was nominated for Goal of the Week, came from one shot on goal, while he was heavily involved throughout the tie, registering 60 touches with two duels and two tackles won.

Han Kyo-won (below, right) also shone this week with the Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors winger scoring a late equaliser to give the Korea Republic champions a share of the spoils in a 2-2 draw at Sydney FC.

The 2016 AFC Champions League winner scored from four shots on goal, one of which was on target, and created a match-high four chances for his teammates. In addition, Han made 29 passes, won eight duels and put in three successful crosses for his 7.7 rating.

JDT matchwinner Mauricio rounds off the top three as the Brazilian defender shone against Suwon, scoring his second goal in consecutive games and excelling in the backline.

Mauricio (below) also made 29 passes, two interceptions and two tackles for his 7.3 rating, but his most telling contribution was his match-winning header when he nodded home to make it 2-1 with 17 minutes to play.


It brought to an end a perfect few days for the former Lazio player, who had also scored the winning goal in JDT's Malaysian Charity Shield victory over Kedah a few days earlier in what was the side's first-ever game at their new Sultan Ibrahim Stadium.

Suwon midfielder Lee Jong-sung enters the list at number four after his all-action display in the defeat at Johor. The 27-year-old made more passes (85) than any player in this week's ranking and is credited with the assist for Antonis' goal to earn a 7.1 rating.

Completing the top five is Sydney FC striker Trent Buhagiar who registered a 7.0 after he scored in the 2-2 draw with Jeonbuk. Also on 7.0 is Suwon full-back Hong Chul, who had 98 touches, made three tackles and created two chances.

Two Jeonbuk players, defender Choi Chul-soon and midfielder Kim Bo-kyung, wrap up the rankings with 6.9 ratings apiece.
